Better Off Dead (Victor the Assassin, #4) by Tom WoodVictor Number 4th. Published as No Tomorrow in the USA.
A hitman must be anonymous, amoral...and alone Victor is the face in the crowd you dont see, a perfect assassin with nothing to live for. But when an old friend turns to him for help, he finds he cant refuse. For once his objective isnt to kill, but to protect. Hunted through the streets of London by ruthless enemies, Victor needs to be more than just a bodyguard...but his every move leads danger closer to the very person hes vowed to defend.
I know many reviews regard this as a weaker collection in the Victor series, not me, yes I know what Tom Wood is so good at is the action, which is great in the surroundings of London, but I personally like to know Victor the assassin better, and here you do, especially to be adding hints of humour with his rare relationship in this book.
Action, suspense and gripping as always, great tough fight scenes, chases, but we dig deeper into the character of Victor with every book you read, which I like so much.
One thing is for sure, if a book can take me away from the television when Wimbledon is on it has do be SO Good and this book had me battling in my head, tennis or reading , I just could not stop reading the last 40% of the book read in two days.
I am so happy that I am on book number five of Victor, ready and excited as Tom Wood does a Q & A for my group A Good Thriller on the 14th July.
One question, why have these books not been turned into movies !
A usual five stars for me, just love this author.

There are no rose-coloured glasses when it comes to Better Off Dead though; yep, the legend of Lane Meyer is still well and truly hilarious after 33 years.
There was not much to like about the teen romantic comedy, Better Off Dead , starring John Cusack. The simple, and often retold story of a high school boy whose girlfriend dumps him for someone better, and his road back to redemption where everyone learns a lesson, is over-cooked.

There are moments of comedic relief in this teenage tale of angst and despair, like the paperboy that persistently chases after Cusack repeating that he wants two dollars that are owed. It was the black Camaro that understood the international language of love. The film also introduces two characters that tie the story together.
